Project profile: The power of paint – from black to white!


It might be our job, but we love transforming a space with paint color! Our recent Chantilly, VA project is an excellent example of how paint can change a home’s aesthetic.The home had a lot of black trim – from baseboards to crown molding and wall trim. We repainted the black (there was a lot of it) to white. That simple change from dark to light lightened the rooms while retaining their elegance.While it might be tempting to rip out all the dark molding, these savvy homeowners opted for repainting. The result isn’t just beautiful; it’s also stylish because wall moldings are very in style these days.Chantilly, VA Project Profile:Here’s an inside look at the extensive work we did in this large home:Entry/Foyer/Stairway/Hallway, repaint: Baseboards, Crown Molding, Wainscoting, Doors/Door Frames, Window Frames, ClosetDining Room: Baseboards, Crown Molding, Wainscoting, Door Frame, Window Frames, Transoms, ColumnsLiving Room: Baseboards, Crown Molding, Door Frame, Window Frames, Transoms, ColumnsOffice: Baseboards, Crown Molding, Doors/Door Frames, Window Frames, TransomsPowder Room: Crown Molding, Door/Door FrameFamily Room: Coffer Ceiling Molding, Baseboards, Crown Molding, Doors/Door Frames, Window Frames, Transoms, ColumnKitchen (w/Breakfast Room): Baseboards, Crown Molding, Doors/Door Frames, Window Frames, TransomsKitchen Cabinets: Including both sides of doors/drawer fronts and underside of upper cabinetsButler’s Pantry: Baseboards, Crown Molding, Doors/Door Frames, Window Frames, TransomsMorning Room: Baseboards, Crown Molding, Doors/Door Frames, Window Frames, TransomsBathroom: Walls, Ceiling, including strip wallpaper and wash down all residual adhesive.
